What Would You Do??

This weekend Scottie and I went to buy a bunch of stuff that we needed before the little lamb arrives! I can't believe I have only 35 days left or 5 weeks! Time is a flying and that means I must be getting busy! So off we went to Target and bought a...

pack and play
changing pad and changing pad cover
bath basin
mirror for the back seat so I can see my little lamb at all times
little gadgets such as a thermometer, nose sucker, etc.
and our beloved baby monitor.

Oh yes, folks we are quite excited about this little invention. I will be able to see my little girl at all times and I'll be able to know if she's hungry, if her binkie fell out, be able to see her breathing, etc. all because of the Summer Slim & Secure Handheld Color Video Monitor.

After we wheeled our two carts of lute up to the check stand, we cashed in and used our gift cards making our purchase of what we thought would be a lot more a not so bad $345.00 grand total. Then we headed over to Babies R Us to grab a few other things that Target didn't have and found that our fantastic baby monitor was on sale for yes, $50.oo less! We were ecstatic and we even more excited that we were going to get it for additional 10% off after the sale price because it was on our registry. We decided to get it and then head back to Target to return the other monitor and get our money back. We were very excited since that would make our first purchase a lot less and our wallets a little fuller. Well, when we walked up to the customer service counter, the teenage boy continued to tell me that we couldn't take it back because it wasn't on the receipt??? Ummmm, HELLO??? We just bought everything about 30 minutes ago on this receipt, I knew it should be on that receipt. After being a little puzzled, we decided to go home with two monitors in hand. Then we started backtracking. That's when I wondered if I had even put the monitor on the counter to pay for it. We did have a lot of other things that we left in the cart because they were too big so I thought maybe it was underneath. That's when my little mind remembered the guy taking the security device off it and asking us when we were due. We told him January 3rd and we was excited because his birthday was on the 4th! I KNEW that I didn't leave it in the cart. Case solved. The cashier took the security device off, but didn't ring it up. Then our guilty conscience kicked in and we knew we had to return it. So we walked back into the store and explained what had happened to the two teenage boys behind the counter. They were shocked that we would even return it!!! It felt so weird just handing it over and walking away. I, for some reason thought that streamers should come down from the ceiling and some TV host would come out with a big check from "What Would You Do?" and reward us for our good acts of honesty. but no. We handed the monitor over like I was handing someone a tissue.
So much for getting our money back. No wonder why I thought that we were getting a TON of baby stuff for such a little price! The most expensive item wasn't even rung up! We just knew that if we had kept it that we would feel guilty every time we looked at our baby girl in that monitor. All I can say is, she better be a little angel since we are little honest parents to be. haha.

Shower for Baby G

This last weekend my lovely sisters: Amy, Megan and Sini plus my fantastic mama "Special K" Threw me and baby G a shower. Let me tell you! It was so perfect and they definitely went all out, I LOVED it! It was so good to see my friends aka college roommates, high school buddies, and many more. I can't even tell you how spoiled I was. A huge thanks to my sisters and mom for making it such a special day and another huge thanks for my many friends who spoiled me and this lovely bundle of joy on the way.

All my fabulous friends. Don't worry, I know it looks like we are the type to put up Christmas decor WAY to early but my mama had hip surgery and wasn't wanting to deal with it afterward so we put it up beforehand. :-)

Yummy food!

My sister Amy made me this cute little diaper cake that I didn't want to take apart to take home.

My sisters put up pictures of the babe and me and Scottie when we were little. SOOO cute!

More Yummy food!

Me with Ginger, and Hadley & Hannah. I taught Hannah last year and just fell in love with her and her sweet mom. We got to be good friends and I am so grateful for their support and friendship. They were the best little present passers you could ask for!

Me & Tiercy. She and I got to be good friends about two years ago when I taught her little boy Ethan. LOVE this woman!

My dear friend Melissa and Jace. We lived by each other before we moved into our new house. Love this lady and her mad pumpkin carving abilities but we sure miss being their neighbors!

Good ol' Shelli!! We have known each other since Pre-School and are still good buddies. She is prego with a little girl as well! We can't wait for our little ones to meet! Maybe we will dress them up in matching dresses and teach them Frosty the Snowman so they can sing it together at their pre-school program. hahaha good times!

Wenders and Kenli!!! Oh how I love this woman! We met back in college at SUU andwere roommates as well. She is the happiest most positive mother of two and can brighten anyone's day! She is one "foxy" lady!

Ahhhh Jess! We have been best friends since our days of being office aids in eight grade! Also roommates at college and have sooooo many good memories of hilarious times in High School on.

Sweet Stephanie Humble! Gosh I love this woman! She is one remarkable lady and I sure miss living close to her. We met back when we lived in Pleasant Grove before we moved. And then there's fantastic Kate. I taught her little boy Carter last year and fell in love with him and his awesome personality. She is a wonderful mama and I have so much to learn from both of these ladies.

Me opening some fun gifts for me and the babe! Thanks mom for the cutest diaper bag...

and MANY other things!

Then I came home and decided that time is a tickin' and it is time to start finishing up those little to do's! Too bad all I want to do is sit in her room and think of what else I can do to it. Don't mind the fact that I have a never ending list of things to get done in my classroom, but for now it can wait....let's just hope that I have a MAJOR nesting phase in the classroom and at home. Here is the next project that I feasted my eyes upon yesterday. And don't you worry if I had only "remembered" to get the supplies, I would have them made right this very minute they are that cute :-)

Now all that is left in her little room is...

-A new dresser (yes the one that I fell in love with and ordered is not my friend at the moment and the drawers are already slipping of the track and won't stay in. Can you say disappointment? YES!!!

-Wait for the chandelier to arrive that will suit my baby girl.....its' on back order till December 22

-A garbage for those stinky little diapers that will soon be appearing left and right

-A cute lil hamper that will hold all those many changes of clothing

-Some cute decor above her crib

-Oh...and of course a sweet little baby girl :-) Can't forget about miss lamb
